Supramolecular Chemistry Course 2019

The Supramolecular Chemistry course is designed for PhD students working in the field of supramolecular chemistry in The Netherlands. This course was initiated more than 20 years with the objective to train PhD students in the theory, analytical techniques, and practice of supramolecular chemistry. It consists of 3 sessions of 2 days that take place in three different universities. This year venues are: Eindhoven University of Technology, University of Twente, and the preconference of ICMSE 2019 in Nijmegen. The number of participants is limited to 75.

After the preconference, students are strongly encouraged to participate in the ICMSE 2019 main conference as well, on 18-20 August. Registration for the main conference ICMSE 2019 is here. The participants of this supramolecular chemistry course are automatically registered for the preconference ICMSE 2019 and DO NOT need to register for the preconference ICMSE 2019 via the ICMSE website.
